On January 25, 1864, the Evening Bulletin, in San Francisco, California, published a glowing description of Shoshone Falls, on the Snake River in Idaho Territory. They opined that the falls might be “the greatest in the world.”
More details on this event have been posted on the blog for Sourdough Publishing. A version of this material also appears in my book, Idaho: Year One – The Territory's First Year.
